A Southern Sunday Dinner on a Saturday Night
Sunday dinners and the traditional dishes associated with them, cooked with love and served to the Civil Rights workers across the South
Old African-American folk tradition has it that if the preacher was invited to Sunday supper the children, who were last to be served always ended up with only the neck bone of the sacrificed chicken. A far more historically important reality of those Sunday dinners and the traditional dishes associated with them was in the 20th century when women and men cooked Fricasseed Chicken and other favorites with love and served them to the Civil Rights workers across the South. Georgia Gilmore’s home-based restaurant The Club from Nowhere, Leah Chase in the heart of the New Orleans French Quarter, and countless others who reached out to feed the workers and leaders of the movement. Come share iconic dishes that fueled body and soul in turbulent times.
